The weatherman had been talking about it all week…the area’s first snow would fall over the weekend. Having been born and raised in Michigan, I love snow. I was pretty excited about measurable snow falling this early in south central Missouri, so I anxiously awaited seeing this first snow of the season.

But I had also wanted to spend the weekend working with my camera and natural sunlight. Snow and sunlight do not usually go together, at the same time, on the same day! So I worked with what I was given…I saw the sunrise on Saturday morning, and recorded, with my camera, how the scene changed as the storm moved in. Here is what I found…

No, it was not the way I had planned it, but what a beautiful weekend it was!
